What else can be done to ensure a child’s healthy immune system? (ie the difference between specific and general immunity).
The unfortunate training for patients to expect a “magic bullet” of immunity has been one of the worst side effects of the vaccination program. While developing a range of specific immunity factors is important, the general immune system is much more important, and has a tendency to be ignored when so much emphasis is placed on acquiring specific immunity through vaccines. The full range of factors related to diet, lifestyle, and everything which takes a sustained effort on the part of the family is what is required for a strong general immunity. In the long run, it is the more valuable side of immunity to work on, as it is what protects us even in the face of “brand new” pathogens which have never been experienced before.
How do you go about treating a condition such as autism?
This is a complex topic, but a basic key to this answer has to do with understanding the difference between a “condition label”, versus a true disease diagnosis. The condition label of “autism” may have a certain general utility in identifying the general characteristics of such a broad-ranging phenomenon, but it does virtually nothing in understanding what is the unique treatment plan needed in each individual case. As I often say, the condition label hides a lot more than it reveals, and if not careful, the practitioner may be tempted to try more a more generic treatment plan out of lack of time or energy to properly investigate the unique case in front of them.
How does Heilkunst look at the genetic tendency to disease in a given child, in order to assess how they might react to a conventional vaccine?
In parallel with considering the core concept of resonance, the factor of the genetic inheritance of diseases in the family tree needs to be acknowledged. The fact that some children have a strong family history of the ‘Sycotic’ miasm (related to conditions such as heart disease and stroke in the family history, for example), predisposes them to have a greater likelihood for having a stronger reaction to a vaccine. When considering the family health history of a given child, I will explain this to parents where there is such a strong Sycotic history in their family, and the greater likelihood that their child would suffer an adverse reaction to a conventional vaccine.
